Let’s Help Enrich the Dorris-Eaton Experience!

The Dorris-Eaton Parents’ Association (DEPA) is an active community of parents who volunteer for the benefit of ALL students of The Dorris-Eaton School.  This wonderful organization brings together parents, children, and teachers to further enhance the Dorris-Eaton experience.

Our membership provides: cultural enrichment programs, young author visits, family outings, parent socials, teacher appreciation days, seasonal class parties, and continued support of the DEPA Library.

The programs of DEPA exist because of you!  It takes every parent making a small contribution of their time to make a large impact.  Let’s keep DEPA strong.  You won’t regret the opportunity to be part of your child’s educational community.

Volunteer now for the 2016-2017 school year – we need you.

Please review our list of DEPA Committees below.  We are seeking additional volunteers to join in the fun.  We welcome and encourage any questions you might have. 

Here’s to an amazing school year.
